Extras would only be broken for the apps that use the -experimental
libs, if there is a fumbled release. So, it's a "life they have
chosen". I'd expect the releases in -experimental to be rather
mechanical merges instead of proper quality assured releases. With
patch releases, it might work ok - however: the old qt-maemo5, while
experimental, was developed and tracked by full time employees; I
don't think 4.7.x has that luxury on maemo side. Chances are, we don't
get lucky and it will suck.
